DETROIT (AP) -Joel Zumaya and Fernando Rodney were placed on the disabled list Sunday by the Detroit Tigers, whose banged-up middle relief is a concern heading into the season.
Zumaya is recovering from shoulder surgery and is expected to be sidelined until midseason. Rodney also has a shoulder injury.
Detroit also put right-hander Jordan Tata (hand) and catcher Vance Wilson (elbow) on the DL; optioned left-handed pitcher Clay Rapada to Triple-A Toledo; and put right-hander Francisco Cruceta on the restricted list.
Right-hander Aquilino Lopez and outfielder Clete Thomas made the Tigers' opening-day roster. Lopez's contract was purchased from Toledo and Thomas' from Double-A Erie.
Detroit hosts Kansas City in its season opener Monday.
